... Abstract: Submerged vanes alter sediment transport by inducing a secondary circulation without significantly compromising the conveyance capacity of the river. Similarly, large trunks of wood may be implemented in rivers as a means of sediment management, with the additional benefit of improving bio-diversity. A laboratory study is conducted to investigate the effects of large wood (LW) on flow patterns and bed morphology. The effectivity of a traditional vane field is compared to a set-up with screens composed of a stacked pile of wooden cylinders, and a set-up with an array of large individual trunks. Results from experiments with a fixed bed indicate that a reduction of streamwise velocity occurs for all configurations, and is markedly larger for the set-up with an array individual trunks. The trunks are least effective in inducing a secondary circulation and cause higher turbulence and drag. Increased porosity does not significantly influence the effectivity of the sediment management structures. In experiments with a mobile sediment bed, all three experimental set-ups have increased bed elevation conform expectations, but for different reasons. A field of trunks acts as a sediment trap because of strong reduction of the streamwise velocity, without producing a strong secondary flow such as dominant in the other configurations. Screens of large wood may be successfully implemented in rivers, as they are only slightly less effective than traditional vanes. The risk of piping underneath structures and the associated development of scour are points of concern. This dataset contains the ADV data, processed ADV data and bed elevation data measured with a line laser scanner and 3D camera

... This dataset contains the gait parameter data generated from the simulation of human gait models with body weight support systems. The included gait models are: Simplest walking model, SLIP model and Muscle reflex model. The simulation body weight support strategies are: constant force, counterweight and tuned spring. The code used for simulation is uploaded in a separate dataset. Since the gait data extraction and processing from the simulation is not fully automated, the current dataset is uploaded separately from the simulation code. The 'boundedline' package used for plotting is credited to Kelly Kearney and obtained from https://github.com/kakearney/boundedline-pkg The 'superbar' package used for plotting is credited to Scott Lowe and obtained from https://in.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/57499-superbar These packages are included in the dataset upload as they are necessary for making the plots.

... The in situ measurement of soil (hydraulic and thermal) property profiles were taken across the three climate zones (arid, semi-arid & semi-humid) over the Tibetan Plateau. In each climate zone, 1) the soil was sampled (c.a. 200 g) with a plastic bag used to measure gravel content, soil texture and soil organic content; 2) the soil was sampled with standard sample rings (5cm in height, 100 cm3 in volume) for the determination of bulk density, porosity and thermal conductivity; 3) for deriving the Soil Water Retention Curve (SWRC), a dedicated small sample ring (1 cm in height, 20 cm3 in volume) was used; 4) the in situ Ks was measured using the Aardvark permeameter, a fully automated constant-head borehole permeameter. Using these samples, the laboratory analyses were carried out with reference to standard methods. The quality of dataset was evaluated based on quality indicators from World Soil Information Institute and on cross check using values in the literature. This dataset was further used to evaluate the existing soil datasets over the Tibetan Plateau.

... Lake Tana basin is one of the most important watersheds of Nile basin. It is of great importance for the economy and politics of Ethiopia. In past decades, natural vegetation of Lake Tana basin was heavily destroyed for continuous expansion of cropland. Vegetation conservation and restoration have to be performed in order to protect natural environment and maintain the biodiversity in Lake Tana basin. To provide detailed information of actual vegetation for planning of vegetation conservation and restoration, in this research we mapped the vegetation of Lake Tana basin based on high spatial resolution images provided by Google earth and field survey data, through the approach of visual interpretation.
